IRIS has been an incredible drama. I have to say that i think its one of the best TV dramas ive ever seen. However, with IRIS drawing to a close now, its time to get ready for the next ship to jump on. That ship is the K Drama "Will It Snow For Christmas".
Dont like Gucci Mane? You`re taking things too seriously then. Gucci Mane is one of the funniest characters to come into hip-hop for a while now, unintentionally of course. Dont like Soulja Boy? Me too! But that doesnt mean you have to skip every track he`s on. Thats how you pass up on some of the better songs by ducking artists that you dont like. However, thanks to the seemingly back-on-track Scott Storch, even Wacka Flocka couldnt fuck this track up.
Plot Small time gangster, Byung-du, making his way up the ranks encounters a childhood friend, now a movie director, who studies Byung-du and his cohorts to help write his new movie. This encounter with his old friend also brings back the presence and feelings for an old flame...
Its a gangster movie so you can expect all the key elements of violence and betrayal. Its not surprising to find also that this movie has now been picked up by an American production company. The movie is packed with violence and betrayal but still manages to keep things light hearted throughout the majority of the movie. In particular, with the developing relationship between the main character and an old flame but also with the help of his underlings who provide plenty of comic relief. Essentially though, this movie is all about the grit. Gangsters getting over on each other with true dog-eat-dog mentality.
Well, Movieline is reporting that Malkovich is in talks to play Vulture along with Anne Hathaway (already cast in the movie) to play a possible female version of Vulture. This goes against previous reports that she was cast as Black Cat.
Im calling Bullshit on this one, only as far as the whole Vultress thing. I can see Malkovich as Vulture (even though Vulture, visually, sucks a giant dick) but a female Vulture? I doubt Raimi would be that stupid. I just hope they dont overload this movie with villains and honestly, i only needed Lizard :p
Deadpool - Ryan Reynolds talks it up a little more/ Rumoured Writers
On the source material -“You want to find the best version of what’s in the comic books, but like a lot of [characters], Deadpool has one of the more inconsistent narratives… It’s tough, because the series has been dropped and reopened so many times. You really have to pick and choose so many of the best elements and cobble those together and create the movie of your dreams.”
On the trailer- “I’ve told Fox already that the only way there’s ever gong to be a ‘Deadpool’ trailer is if Deadpool makes his own trailer… He needs to be talking to the movie audience … with the movie trailer voice: ‘In a world… gone mad… one man… must stand alone…"
Also, rumour is that the writers of Zombieland are going to be the writers.
Marvel Studios - David Maisel Variety reports that David Maisel will step down as chairman of Marvel Studios when Disney's acquisition of the company wraps up.
Maisel joined Marvel in 2004 as president of the studio and was later promoted to chairman in 2007, after he helped raise the $525 million that enabled the company to start financing and producing its own films, starting with Iron Man and The Incredible Hulk.
Maisel will continue to serve as an executive producer on Marvel's next three movies, Iron Man 2, Captain America & Thor while pursuing other opportunities.
Kevin Feige, Marvel's production president, will now serve as its main man for Disney, reporting directly to Walt Disney Studios chairman Rich Ross.
Damn Lil Wayne & Lloyd kill every track they come together on. Drake & Nicki Minaj were also awesome. Im lovin Nicki Minajs abstract style, though i heard she bit the style from someone else but who gives a fuck, shes clearly rockin it the bestest :p
Ive never really liked minimates. I think that, they are just to small for me to give a shit. You cant really display things of that size unless you have a fuck load of them. However, i love how they actually made Mickey Rourke look cute! :D and Iron Man 2 armour in minimate form looks awesome. Kinda wish i was a kid again with Marvel licensed Legos ^_^
Thanks to overseas sales and TV viewing figures in Korea, IRIS has been greenlit for a second season :D. Thats awesome considering that the current season is 20 episodes and right now around episode 10 its just soooo awesome. The bad news? (cause there always has to be some kind of bad news) Lee Byeung Hun wont be returning for season 2 as it would interfere with his filming schedule on GI Joe 2 :(. Well, as long as Kim Tae Hee is back on board, im sold! :D
After wanting to see this movie for quite sometime, i found myself kinda disappointed. The movie felt like it went on for too long and the things in the movie that seemed kinda cute and endearing soon became old hat. It felt like it made its point at least 30 mins before the end of the movie even. But still, definitely worth watching! Its funny, visually pleasing and some great acting from Kang-ho Song
Touching and very cute, but it didnt end quite the way i wanted it to. Highlights of this movie were the relationship between the mother and son which was sooo cute and also the acting of both of them. The movie is thoughtful and funny in small doses which were just the right amount. I think a better direction of the story, with a more satisfying ending would have made this movie much better but still, it was very good :D
"Memories Of Murder" (2003) Crime/Drama/Mystery/Thriller 8/10
Kang-Ho Song again in one of the better crime movies ive seen in a long time. Although it doesnt give you the same kind of thrill of a movie like "Seven", it didnt really need to. Movies about Serial Killers dont really need to have the main villain be incredibly sick or smart. The acting was great and i really enjoyed the rural setting of the movie.
I made this drawing entirely in the duration of the Japanese culture class on Thursdays. Usually, i just nod off or get incredibly uncomfortable so i decided to make use of the class for a change and made possibly one of my best drawings to date. Im starting to find that actually, im not that bad at drawing with a pencil and paper so from now on, ill try to sketch a lot more often in my free time. Below is the version now that it has been digitised but the original drawing has now been inked and rests on the wall above my desk.
We had to make New Years post cards for each other in our General C class the other day. Pretty fun considering we are supposed to be learning Japanese but i think the teacher just wanted to give us a bit of a break before our mid term exams, providing us with blank postcards, felt tips and crayons. Lucy made me a nice postcard with mount Fuji, a tree, rainbow and cat waving. Its very cute, i should post it up on here really. In return i made her one which celebrates the year of the tiger. Its fuckin badass!
Finally im back on the internet. I was happy to find that one of the first things was favreau personally releasing the iron man 2 poster onto the internet.
Can you say goosebumps? i had actual goosebumps when i saw this poster and still cant get over that something ive really treasured/enjoyed for a long time has become something of a relaity in movies.
Word on the street........Scarlet Johansson has signed on to play Black Widow again in the Avengers movie :D. Some further news about the Avengers comes up in the following section about Thor......
There have been further casting announcements and news items about Thor recently but i didnt feel any of them blog-worthy......until now! First comes some really promising/exciting comments made by Joe Quesada (Marvel`s cheif editor). Secondly came the news that Jeremy Renner ("Hurt Locker") is considered for the role of Hawkeye. How they are gonna fit Hawkeye into both the Thor and Avengers movies is interesting but wow, that would be awesome to have him on board and especially to see him in the avengers :D
So everyone heard recently that the Silver Surfer movie got scrapped right? apparently, we heard wrong :p It seems the project is still under production and being taken very seriously over at Fox studios
